I'm going to sign up for this challenge closer to its start time in February. That way i can make sure i list the right books and don't read them ahead of time! LOL

Good luck! ;)

With 24 books to choose from, I figure I can't go too wrong with the list! Besides, I really want to finish every book I own here before August, since I will likely be moving on. There are a few I am saving for my anticipated trip after, but otherwise, everything must be read.

It's a bit daunting, really. Must.stop.buying.books!

I am ashamed to say that I have not read any of these books...and I consider myself a reader! Yikes!! I'm going to dust off the cobwebs and crack out some books!

This looks like a good thing to plan out some reading for the upcoming year - only I'd have more than 12 I'd like to read!
